I am building an application using tomcat and struts framework.
I am facing a strange problem in implementing html:file tag. under normal circumstances i am able to upload the file without any problems. now suppose i have a form of few other fields like text, checkbox, etc., and including the file field. If someone enters an invalid field. i do a server side validation and take the user back to the form page so that they can re-enter the invalid field. the rest of the field stay populated as expected but the file field becomes empty. which is not the behaviour i want. The file field should remain populated with the file i selected in my file open dialog box. is this a normal behaviour with html:file or am i missing something. My html file tag looks as follows.
<html:file property="resumeFile" name="resourceForm"/>

That is normal behaviour of html file tag.
Try sending selected location back to the form.
